In hindsight, we really should have named COVID-19 and all it’s variants EBOLA or PLAGUE. I know COVID isn’t nearly as deadly, but I think people get EBOLA or PLAGUE better. No one would equate Ebola with a common flu. Fear is a great motivator. But who am I kidding, right? Someone will spin this with “Oh, this Ebola is actually a lot safer than the other kind.” We are so screwed.
